Have you ever thought that the world consists not only of strong and powerful men but also from very strong women who even can be much vigorous than the representatives of the strong sex, even who are athletes or bodybuilders.
Here I would like to tell you about the strongest women in the world:
- Becca Swanson
Becca Swanson from America managed not only to become the most powerful sportsman among women, but also among the ten strongest people in the world. She won all possible awards in powerlifting and can gain victory over lots of vigorous men.
Becca became interested in bodybuilding in the mid 90-ies. This sport became so suitable and adorable for her that she decided to devote all her life to it. This decision proved to be correct and has achieved some results. Six years on, Swanson was invited to participate in the contest "The strongest woman".
This event was a turning point in the fate and career of Becky. In the bench press, she lifted 270 pounds, in the deadlift she mastered 310 pounds, in the squat she lifted and held 387 pounds.
Today Becca Swanson continues to do weightlifting regularly visits the gym and maintains the status of the most powerful women.
- Anna Kurkurina
Next in the ranking of the most powerful woman in the world is Ukrainian sportswoman who is actually the champion of her country. Going in for bodybuilding Anna Kurkurina began after forty years. She went on such a step because of being dissatisfied with her figure, considering it imperfect and problematic. After five years of diligent training, she gained the desired harmony, but didn't stop there.
As it chanced, she was urged to work in the zoo. The time spent there has greatly changed her temper: she had to do heavy work, carry bags with food for the animals, move the animals from place to place, feed the young predators who have been abandoned by the mother.
At the same time Kurkurina began visiting a gym. By the way, while weightlifting was an exclusively male privilege, women were limited to fitness and aerobics. But she worked together with men, achieving such results that all of them stayed with their mouths open. Later, she began training women: independently choosing training program and exercises. Later, in 1998, she opened a private fitness club and has a channel on YouTube: incidentally very popular.
After hearing about the strongest girl of the planet, Anna decided to find out what she can do to occupy this position and started training. It took two years to prepare the body and now Kurkurina is on the list of the most powerful women in the world.
Of course, her body was changing, inevitably it became less feminine. "I'm the strongest woman – but who else should I be? – answered Anna.
